Monte Verde Group's story

This group consists of four individuals who have worked in several loan cycles. They are from a place called Benito Juárez, which celebrates the Festival of San Felipe during the month of March.

Don Pedro is a new member of the group and was interviewed for this description. He has two children with his wife Sra. Elvia. His children are in elementary and high school respectively. Don Pedro says that his proudest accomplishment is being able to continue moving forward.

He is requesting a loan so that he can invest in materials for making canvases. Don Pedro has been in this line of work for 10 years and 10 months. He says that he started this business so that he could generate household income in order for his family to have what they need. Don Pedro hopes that this loan will enable him to continue increasing his income and grow his business a little bit more so that his children can get ahead. His greatest wish is to buy a machine for his work so that he can continue producing canvases for his customers.

The remaining members of the group are all women: • Flor de Luz will invest her loan in the purchase of shoes for resale. • Sra. Victoria will invest in the purchase of chickens for grilling. • Sra. Celinda will invest in the purchase of merchandise so that she can restock her grocery business.

In this group: Flor De Luz, Maria Celinda, Victoria, Pedro
